Both Indian Rhinos and Gibbon are extremely beautiful figures. I wasn't even aware that these were being released. Fantastic, and congratulations Yurumi on your latest acquisitions.

Thank you dear collector friends, I am pleased that you liked the models and photos. sunny

Here, first a picture in size comparison with other Indian Rhino models, including the wonderful model of Safari (on the right):
My Papo-Newcomers of 2013 - Page 2 IMG_3385_Indian_Rhino_models01
...and I think it fits very well in terms of size.

Other photos follow a little later. Wink

Thank you for the great pics. Papos new Indian rhinos are magnificant-it seems, this brand becomes better in every year, also the lar is well done.At last we have more phantastic Indian rhinos.

I look Forward the rhinos as a great Addition to my rhino collection-I make Pictures of them after I've got the Papo Rhinos. I have now four species of rhinos,but unfortunately, still no Sumatran Rhino-so please collecta and Mojö-do a Sumatran Rhion with calf...

Very good comparison pictures, Ralf! Many thanks! Very Happy
I am a little tempted with the Papo adulte Indian rhino, not properly a priority, it looks very nice. I am quite happy with my Britains and Safari but.... I don't know which will be my reaction when I see it in real. :)
I have the Schleich too but this one is of a clearly lower quality. The Simba? I don't remember this one... Very Happy

Buy, Roger, buy Laughing

Yes, the Indian Rhino of Simba I have so far only seen once and bought the same but is now some years ago.
There were also other models of Simba, I believe lion, tiger or something, but I did find these not beautiful.


And a few days ago and today came the same for the next Newcomers sunny

At first the Polar Bear:

Nice additions, but I have to admit, I am a bit disappointed with the grizzly.
He looked so well colored in the other photos.
He is still wonderful though. congrats!

Congrats Ralf! Gorgeous! Sad(o)):
When CollectA sent me some new 2013 figurines, Roger said he was a little jealous. Laughing
Now it's my turn to be a little jealous with you Ralf. Laughing You're so fast! I only have the polar bear so far.
And I'm still looking for CollectA king cheetah. bounce
I can't wait to get Papo Indian rhinos, gibbon, and grizzly bear. bounce
But the color of the bear is a bit somehow different from the pic in the catalog. But it's still nice, I think. Very Happy
Congrats! And thank you for sharing the pics! Very Happy

This is a thought I've been having. I'll need to actually see them, but I suspect the Grizzly will be at least top three of the entire year.

I too think the Grizzly looks great.
It always amazes me how much a standing upright bear looks like a human being.
Spooky! affraid

Hmm,... i think it's difficult to explain my problem with the figurine, but there's something odd.
Let's take a look at some pictures

So my main problem might be the "Yeti-effect", there's too much human in t, to me, the sculpt looks more like this Grizzly:

The paintjob is also worse than expected, nice candidate for a repainting session (what about Joan?).

This is exactly the problem that I have with Schleich's most recent Standing Grizzly Bear. I think the Schleich is much worse than the Papo in this respect.

I agree the Schleich one looks a little like a teddy bear, but then again, I don't think it is supposed to be an adult, more like a two or three year old. I like the Papo bear, only thing is his arms are a little far from his body, which I think is making the "yeti-affect". Only other thing is I wouldn't have made his neck ruff so big, but I don't think it makes it a bad figure.

I've nothing intelligent to contribute, just: I can't get over how much more appealing the girl on the left in the human comparison pic is to me in comparison to the touched up one. The left one is downright beautiful to me! Very Happy

Funny, overall the things PeGe mentions as detracting of his opinion of the Papo grizzly are the exact qualities that make the model so appealing to me. (Well, that and the technically good sculpting.) Bears, especially when skinned and hung, do bear a striking resemblance to people physically. In the old days one of the many euphemistic/honorific expressions for the bear that Finnish people used translates roughly to "the old man of the forest". I believe similar expressions are quite common in other languages, too, presumably just because of that physical likeness.
